OCSE collects information from federal, state and private sources to share with state child support programs. The information includes employment and wages, SSA benefits, military entitlements, financial accounts and balances, insurance claims, unemployment, and child support case data. States use this information to ensure that paternity is established, fair and equitable child support orders are in place, and child support is paid consistently.
Authorized federal agencies use the employment and wage information to prevent fraudulent payments and ensure the integrity of federal benefit programs such as the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and housing assistance from Department of Housing and Urban Development.
